Fell Pony DVD

fell pony scoiety dvd brian blessed stallion breed show performance driving trialsThe Fell Pony Society has recently published a
DVD aimed at promoting the breed.

It not only features the Fell pony on the breath taking fells in Cumbria but also includes interviews with some of the hill farmers and breeders who talk about the ponies and how they manage them on these open fells.

The DVD also features the FPS Stallion and Breed Shows, performance and driving trials, and the ridden finals at Olympia. It shows the versatility of the breed and gives an insight into why it is so important for the breed to hold onto the remaining
hill herds.

The DVD was filmed by Alan and Denise Tibbitts of DVX Productions with narration by Brian Blessed.

The DVD, which costs £15 plus post and packing is available from the Fell Pony Society.

lewis hebrides pony in houseA woman on Lewis in the Outer Hebrides is keeping a pony in her house because she says there is nowhere suitable on the island where it can be stabled over the winter.

Stephanie Noble, 65, moved 3 year old Grey Lady Too into the lounge of her semi-detached home in Back on Christmas Eve.

To make the pony comfortable Ms Noble has laid a bed of straw over a covering of 60 litres of cat litter and four heavy duty blankets and has turned her chairs into feeding troughs.

The local council said she could do what she wished at her home, but would not encourage taking in a pony and the Scottish SPCA said it had offered to take care of her pony.

Contraceptive injections for Dartmoor pony herd

dartmoor hill poniesA herd of Dartmoor ponies are to get contraceptive injections in a bid to reduce the number of unwanted foals. The injection will be given to 20 animals in the spring and if the trial is successful it could be expanded.

According to the the Dartmoor Hill Pony Association the foals are not in demand in the current economic climate and there are currently too many of them.
Jonathan Lamming, of Dart Vale Veterinary Group said that this type of intervention was in the forefront of equine reproductive technology and that enquires were made in Australia and America, because there are no drugs in the UK that could be used to control the fertility of horses.
